This book replaces an original first edition which I purchased many years ago. It offers a unique and common sense perspective to the nutrition fad which has hit the western world in the last 20 years. It draws from a variety of foreign cultures that offer a wealth of tried and tested principles regarding nutrition. It will contradict some commonly accepted myths relating to diet. It is a must read for anyone that wants a broad perspective on a topic that is characterized by sensational sound bites and popular opinion that are not necessarily based in fact.

Not what I was hoping for
Reviewed in the United States on May 2, 2016
I bought this book hoping to learn about holistic nutrition and he to implement it. This book is more like a science/nutrition text book. I found it boring. There were a few chapters that I found interesting, but for the most part it was a very slow and boring read.

This book is incredible! The information is so meticulous yet so easily explained! If you want to know more about what goes in your mouth and how your body responds to it, read this book! It is as old as I am but has, still, an outstanding relevance! Much info. I am sure has been updated but the basics are still the same and some of the things they knew back then (food and health issues) have proven them correct by exploding! Read it! (Shipping was quick on this book, as always through Amazon, and of course, prices for item and shipping were great!)

I can now have a conversation about this topic and cite studies and data, and I can then research those studies further.

Even though the author is an MD, he brings in Ayurveda principles and explains nutrition from both a medical and Ayurvedic perspective. As a healer, I recommend this book often to my clients.

As a biology teacher, the thing I greatly like about this book is the way in which it compliments and expands perfectly the A level biochemistry syllabus on food types. We are so often taught the biochemical structures of our foods, their physical and energetic properties, as though we intend to gormandise a chemistry set. But we are talking about fooood. This book bridges the gap between blunt science, and the human activity of eating. Ballentine supplies rich depth to the fascinating science of food, including the chemical details, history, sociological and political aspects of food, as well as preparation methods and eating, bringing the bare biochemical bones to life. His approach, although no less technical, is naturopathic, and his bias is towards the delicious wholefood Ayurvedic style of eating from India. Recipes are scattered throughout the book, and I particularly recommend the recipes for home made chapattis and paneer. The book starts with chapters on Society, Soil, and The Cell, which truly sets the tone for this holistic and wide ranging project. After a detailed exploration of the main food types (carbohydrates, proteins, fats, water), Ballentine writes chapters on the Vitamins and Minerals- chapters! Not just meagre tables giving chemical formulas and the names of deficiency conditions. You are right there with the suppurating ulcers of the scurvy ships, or struggling with the doctors to diagnose the subclinical vitamin B3 deficiency (pellagra) of Southern schizophrenic rednecks. Ballentine also gives proper consideration to fasting, elimination, and cooking methods, ably demonstrating the therapeutic dimension of wholefood cooking, as well as the diet- mind connection, and a pretty comprehensive introduction to the Ayurvedic philosophy of the tridosha, and constitutional eating. The book was written in 1978, and for those people who poo poo this work as `out of date'' I can only say the information presented chimes with modern nutritional knowledge perfectly. Many of Ballentine''s hunches were correct and the last chapter on philosophy, and in particular biological transmutation of minerals is so forward thinking, it even has a weird science freak like me still reeling! This book should form the basis of a school syllabus which empowers young people and encourages them to develop a personal lifelong intuitive relationship with whole foods. Only then will the current plague of junk food induced obesity, cancer, heart disease and diabetes begin to crumble away.
